I’m sure many of you are asking yourselves, “Damn it, Derek. When are you going to give us information about your book?”
The answer is: very, very soon.
I have a bit more finalizing to do with creating promotional material for the novel in order to present it.
I’ve knew with self-publishing that I would have to create a lot of hype. Most importantly, I want to do it right. There’s a lot of stylistic ideas for the promotion of the book which I have to still get all sorted out, such as copyrighting and what-not. It’s not really complicated as it is so much time-consuming. I definitely will have something up before the Christmas holiday.
Speaking of copyrighting, I’ve been learning quite a bit about that, as well as getting a proper ISBN for my book. They’re actually surprisingly easy to get done.
Being in Canada, the process is fairly straight-forward and relatively inexpensive to do. Fortunately, these are all costs I’ve expected to absorb while creating my book so they do not necessarily come as a surprise. It’s more the “cheapness” of their price that is the surprise.
In fact, they’re so straight-forward, I may as well show you the websites for them. (They are both Canadian-based sites as I’m Canadian and this is how I roll).
For ISBN’s, check out the Canadian ISBN Service System (CISS).
For copyrights for a novel, see the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.
Both sites require standard information to get started. Outside of that, it’s just a matter of actually publishing the book.
But like I said, there will be more on that later.
In the meantime, you can follow me on Twitter for my ridiculous ramblings.
Keep on Space Truckin’!
